Living the Shuffle is the amazing journey of actor, writer, director, and filmmaker, Robert Townsend. Townsend, a natural-born storyteller, takes you on a show biz rollercoaster ride of ups and downs from the dangerous streets of Chicago, to performing Julius Caesar at a pimp convention in New York City. He also takes you behind the scenes of giving birth to his first film “Hollywood Shuffle” done with a miracle and a credit card. Townsend gives you a front-row seat, sharing life lessons he has learned along the way.

This one-man show returns Townsend to his roots in the theater, where he showcases his uncanny ability with impressions and perform a cast of characters like you’ve never seen before. This edgy, raw and, hilarious show will inspire and give hope to the dreamer in anyone.
